Of course, events such as these are always organised well in advance and should only be performed once the appropriate permission has been granted.
Although abseiling may appear dangerous, vigorous safety checks are made before anyone begins to descend. In addition to checking your own safety equipment, other abseilers will often check the safety wear of their team mates to ensure that no-one is unnecessary danger.
